As the world mourns the loss of the iconic Whitney Houston, Grammy producers have been making frantic changes to tonight’s show, so as to honor the late, great, superstar.

Speaking to the media this morning, Grammy executive producer Ken Ehrlich said:
“Our plan at this point, I’ve asked Jennifer Hudson to come.
